My “I’d Rather Be Anywhere” Workout Playlist


How many times have you walked intro the gym and imagined all the other places you’d rather be? A few that repeatedly come to mind: sunbathing in the tropics, attending an extravagant dinner party, or curled up on my couch watching Desperate Housewives.

There are times when I can convince myself to forget the workout and go make one of these scenarios a reality (at least the Desperate Housewives marathon), but I know I will look and feel significantly better if I push these fantasies to the back of my mind and start sweating. Fortunately, I have a powerful workout partner to help: My iPod. There are so many talented artists who not only help get me into training mode, but also make my workouts fun (and fly by!). Here’s my latest powered-up playlist:

Nero – Promises (Skrillex remix) – 142 BPM

Adele – Rolling in the Deep – 105 BPM

Skrillex – Breakn’ a Sweat – 140 BPM

Edward Sharpe – Home – 113 BPM

The Gaslight Anthem- The Patient Ferris Wheel – 91 BPM

Rhianna- We Found Love – 128 BPM

Deadmau5 – Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff (Nero remix) – 140 BPM

The Wanted – Glad You Came – 127 BPM

Flo Rida & Sia – Wild Ones – 129 BPM

Bruce Springsteen – We Take Care of Our Own – 123 BPM
